Buddha Eden Garden – The Largest Oriental Garden In Europe

Bacalhoa Buddha Eden Garden
It is no secret that we’re lovers of Oriental garden design at Paramount Plants. Earlier this year, we discovered a most surprising find, just one hour north of Lisbon at Quinta Dos Loridos, you will find the Buddha Eden Garden. An ambitious Oriental Peace Garden which is in fact the largest oriental garden in Europe.
We were intrigued to find out more… conceived and created in 2001, by the wealthy art patron José Berardo, the garden occupies over 35 hectares and welcomes everyone in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, embracing a multi faith philosophy, to promote peace and understanding. Central to its success as a garden, is not surprisingly the planting itself, yes the statuary is impressive but it is the nature and planting that steals the show…
